A quote from the Met Office, and I'll take "...northern parts of the UK..." as North Wales!

"The Meteorological Office is cautious about rumours that record warmth later in the summer will reward the country for the season's poor start, although plenty of sunshine is expected in June. The Met's maximum 30-day forecast says: "The best of any dry, settled and sunny weather will be over northern parts of the UK at the start of June."

This coming Saturday afternoon 26th, see's the annual Great Straight raft race, which is always worth a few laughs.

The home made rafts (some very dodgy looking) launch from Port Dinorwic - Y Felinheli and race through the swellies onto the finish line at Menai Bridge.

Hopefully I will be on the water taking a closer look.

A previous event's pics here:

With regards to an around the island trip or even off to the Skerries, I can't do the 3rd & 4th June, some celebration or something going on!
